Meeting stringent environmental standards according to the ISO, the hotel has recently been awarded a carbon-neutral footprint. The commitment to sustainability extends from minimal emissions in rooms and suites to on-site restaurants serving thoughtful menus, including locally sourced ingredients at Berliner Stube and a certified organic breakfast at Parksalon. The Maluna Spa features a circular pool, sauna with cold plunge pools and splash showers and marine-based products from Thalgo for Thalasso. The overall feel blends clean design inside with a quiet parkside setting.
In the Area
The large, business-friendly Steigenberger attracts leisure guests for its versatile location in the western part of Berlin—it overlooks the quiet Los-Angeles-Platz private park but sits just a block down from the “Ku-damm”, or Kurfurstendamm, Berlin’s version of the Champs-Elysees, with Chanel, Gucci, YSL and more lining the avenue. Plus, there’s no shortage of cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries to explore in the immediate neighborhood. Sights within easy reach include the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and Zoo Berlin, while famed Tiergarten to the east offers more green space in a spectacular setting smack-dab in the urban center.
How to Get There
We visited the hotel 3 years ago & were delighted with our stay.
On this trip, it was disappointing that the gym and the evening bar/lounge area were closed for refurbishment without notice.
The reception and restaurant staff were, as last vist, excellent.
The AC in our room was not working on arrival but fixed the following day and the bathroom door needed attention as any nighttime visits woke my wife!
The mattress covers made us very hot when asleep even with the AC working.
The Steigenberger Hotel Berlin is located near the Zoo, in a lively, good and safe neighborhood. Truly an excellent location with plenty of public transportation within walking distance. Wonderful guest rooms with spacious bathrooms. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Delicious breakfast, strongly suggest booking the room with breakfast included. Definitely worth.
The hotel is well situated close to Kurfürstendamm and the U-bahn (U1 and U9). Bahnhoff Zoo is approximately 10 minutes walk away where the X9 bus to and from Tegel airport departs. The room was large and the air condition was good although a bit loud.
As part of my room rate a Berlin travel card for zone A-C was included which is a nice extra making it very easy to get around in Berlin and surround areas like Potsdam.
Unfortunately, the hotel does not quite live up to what you would expect from a five star hotel. Especially an incident of being woken up at 01:00 by a member of staff entering my room despite a do not disturb sign on the door detracts from the overall rating of the hotel.
Upon arrival the room was not well cleaned: spots of toothbrush on the wall mirror of the bathroom, dirty fingerprints (make-up) on the small mirror and a bunch of hairs on the hairdryer drawer... Then on the 2nd day room service left the window wide open which resulted in having 4 or 5 flies in the bedroom...
Also my colleagues (we were staying for an event) were given a transportation voucher upon arrival, which I never received. The reception staff is friendly but very few for the amount of work: only 2 people on the reception, not well organized and big lines for check-in. I was once waiting for more than 15 min to ask a question while one of the receptionists gave touristic advice and talked about going to museums and restaurants... It's one thing to be nice or helpful, other is to keep clients waiting to check-in while you're playing guide.
The breakfast is good, lots of variety and the people there are nice.
Perfect location for a extented weekend in Kurfürstendam area. Nice, clean and quiet room with a powerful (but quiet) airconditioner and neat bathroom. Great breakfast! Kind and helpfull staff. We didn't like the down blankets and pillows in bed - after telling about this to reception, they were changed promptly. Great value for money. Complimentary BVG tickets were a nice extra.
